Now, I’ve been saying that I always do this for fun and well yeah I do. But truth of the matter is, some people do this for the thrill of competing. And with that, you have to know if you can handle what comes in hand with what you’re doing cosplay for.
If you feel like people are looking down on you and you feel overwhelmed by the others in a competition. Well, use your head for a bit because people ARE THERE TO WIN. Don’t take it so badly if you supposedly do it for fun and then decide to join a competition.
I'm usually on the right hand side of this hobby,
Not too good with spending a whole month on just one thing, let alone a full year! Nope, not for me plus as is I'm highly competitive (Against myself most of the time) and I always strive to get better without having to look at other people's works/progress. Because that will just be depressing. So, whether you do this for fun or do this for the fun of winning~ key point is you understand that there are consequences to it and you'd better be prepared for it.
